Then, I had an epiphany the other night that I could simply create my own graphic printed tee! I must warn you, this is not the best DIY tutorial I have ever written... I kinda just winged it. I have pretty decent artistic skills so I free hand drew the image and then painted it. In hindsight, I would have made a few more adjustments to the process.... Let's see what I created...
So, let me recap what is in front of you. I started with the image of that adorable sweater from Forever 21. I then dug around in my pajama drawer for this old tee. Instead of a piece of cardboard, I used a paper bag from Trader Joe's. I just happened to have a bottle of black acrylic paint laying around too. If you're a crafter, like myself, you probably don't have to look far for any of these materials! Then, I free hand drew the cat face onto the tee. *Suggestion* I should have printed out an image from the internet and traced it... probably would have come out a little straighter. On a positive note, it now has that one in a million feel.
All in all, I was very pleased with the outcome. Like I said, I probably could have used a but more finesse in my execution, but I like to be reckless in crafting sometimes ;)
